This is Bonnie.
This is me.
We were standing
silently.
She said,
"I don't mean to stare.
Mister, you've got
Crazy hair."


A
love of all things Gaiman sure helps when reading Crazy Hair. That and
a love of all-things-silly. In Crazy Hair we meet a semi-crazy pair: A
little girl and a grown man with some crazy hair.

What's going on in this man's crazy hair? A little bit of everything I'd imagine:

In my hair
Gorillas leap,
Tigers stalk,
And ground sloths sleep.
Prides of lions
Make their lair
Somewhere
in my crazy hair.
See
what I mean about silly? But silly works at times. I'm not saying it
doesn't. I did like that it was imaginative. I can see a few extension
activities working with this one. Page after page, Bonnie hears the
warnings about his crazy hair. But what happens when she braves to
approach that 'crazy' hair with a comb? Read and see for yourself in
Neil Gaiman's Crazy Hair.

Personally, I don't care for the Dave
McKean illustrations. He's just not my style. But you might appreciate
them more than I did. I see this one as appealing to a wider audience
than most picture books. Gaiman fans especially will want to check this one out!
